Democrats seem almost giddy with excitement over the back-to-back massacres in El Paso and Dayton, and with good reason. First, it diverted the public’s attention from the embarrassing Baltimore-infestation issue. Second, it gave them a great opportunity to fundraise, while at the same time blaming the tragedies on Donald Trump.
Forget that the Dayton shooter was a Radical Left supporter of Elizabeth Warren. It doesn’t matter. Everyone who isn’t a toothless, bible-thumping Walmart shopper realizes that it’s Trump’s divisive rhetoric that caused the shooter to lose his mind. The rules of the Dirty Dems’ game are simple: Heads I win, tails you lose.
The mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton were horrific, as is every mass shooting — including the many that occurred when Barack Obama was in office — but, at the same time, 200 people have already been murdered in Baltimore this year. That’s more than six times the number of murders in El Paso and Dayton combined. Are these 200 deaths less horrific than the 31 deaths that resulted from two mass shootings?
Let’s face it, Baltimore’s murders don’t make headlines because (1) they would make the Democrats who run the city look bad and (2) most of the murders are black on black, which doesn’t fit the Dirty Dems’ narrative. Apparently, all homicides are equal, but some homicides are more equal than others.
Whether it’s violence or any other issue, one of the biggest mistakes Republicans make is to allow Democrats to get away with the old canard that “there’s plenty of blame to go around.” Let’s be clear here: There’s no question that a large number of Republicans are weak-kneed, unprincipled cowards who live in fear that they will be accused of being racists … or white supremacists … or just inhumane guys who were bullies in high school and tie their dogs to the roof of their cars when they go on vacation.
But notwithstanding their cowardice and lack of principle, Republicans, for the most part, are not hate mongers who traffic in race-baiting day in and day out. On the contrary, they desperately try to demonstrate to the world that they are reasonable, civil human beings. Put another way, they never tire of dutifully playing the role of useful idiots for Democrats.
By contrast, Democrats are neither reasonable nor civil. Their specialty is projection, a skill at which they are masters. Almost without fail, they excel at accusing Republicans of being guilty of whatever evil they themselves are engaging in at the moment. And why not? After all, Republicans fall for it every time. There’s always a Republican toady like Nikki Haley ready to jump at the chance to self-righteously babble something like, “This is so unnecessary.”
As Republicans once again scramble to please Democrats by passing some form of meaningless gun legislation (Wasn’t the Brady Bill supposed to solve the gun-violence problem?), the real problems, as always, will not even be addressed. The biggest reason for this is that Democrats will continue to divert attention from workable solutions by focusing not only on hate and division, but on meaningless ways to “control” guns.
I’ve been around a long time, and I’ve never heard of a single case where a gun killed someone. I’ve heard of thousands of cases where a human being used a gun … or a knife … or a pillow … or a rope … or a club to kill someone, but never a case where a gun acted on its own. Dough-headed liberals simply cannot accept the fact that actual statistics prove that murder rates are highest where gun laws are the most strict. But, as Joker Joe says, truth is more important than facts.
Which is why I wish pundits and politicians would stop saying “to assure that this kind of tragedy never happens again.” It will happen again … and again … and again, because real solutions are always ignored.
You don’t need elaborate studies to conclude that the main drivers of mass shootings are mental health problems, bullying in school, fatherlessness, violent video games and movies, and, above all, hateful rhetoric from the Radical Left — e.g., Robert De Niro, Cory Booker, and Joe Biden all babbling about punching out the president of the United States. Even better, how about the gal who posted on Facebook about Mitch McConnell, “Just stab the mother f*cker in the heart.”
Of course, the real purpose of the white supremacy and racist silliness is to silence all dissent. Let’s put aside political correctness and tell it like it is: Radical Leftists are vile, angry, depraved miscreants who will do or say anything to force others to accept their view of the world. Their hysterical rhetoric about Trump being the cause of last weekend’s mass shootings, coupled with their using those tragedies to fundraise, demonstrates once again that they are totally devoid of morals and compassion.
It’s time for conservatives to stop trying to be politically correct and face up to the fact that there is not “plenty of blame to go around.” The truth is that the vast majority of hate, anger, and violence comes from Democrats, especially the Radical Left base of today’s Democratic party.
Let’s get real: Donald Trump has lots of flaws, but being a racist is not one of them. In fact, he is the first president in my lifetime to show, through his deeds, that he’s serious about helping African-Americans and Hispanics.
The truth that no one dares to talk about is that the best way to decrease violence is to clamp down — hard — on the hateful moral posturing of the left. Yes, this includes the moral posturing of all Democrats in response to mass shootings. Their odious, self-righteousness causes more violence than Donald Trump’s clumsiest tweet.
Sorry to have to say it, but I honestly don’t believe the Radical Left can be stopped by peaceful means. It’s way too late for that. Which means that sooner or later liberty-loving Americans are going to have to make some difficult decisions if they truly want America to survive.
I’ll leave it to your imagination to figure out what those decisions might be.
